    I've liked Siobhan since auditions. She's quirky and different but with an amazing voice and real "performance ability". Too many top 12 stood in one spot and sang their songs - Siobhan commanded the stage, used all of it, and I could see the reason for the Adam Lambert references not so much in the high notes as in the care she obviously took in staging the song, in terms of her position, lighting, creativity, using the stage for full effect. Fantastic performance and can't wait to see what she does, week after week.


    She was definitely incredible. I thought no one would choose that number, it seems more like a chant. But then I thought 'Siobhan might.' Well she took it on Nailed It. It was like acarnival ride thru spellbound. To me, she sang an almost un-singable song.She kept the mood, the tune the lyrics all perfect..the rest she owned. The voice and what she's trained it to do, turn on a dime, cool sea breeze, or fiery brushfire energy and style. Voted over a hundred times....


    She needs to work on those high notes, she's no adam lambert.
